index exceeds matrix dimesion error

index exceeds matrix dimesion error

index exceeds matrix dimesion error

Hi there,

while trying to resolve a problem using cellstr() function, i decided to test the example given in matlab manual, but instead got this error message, can anyone just help out on the cause and ways of resolving it

 S=['abc ';'defg';'hi  ']

S =


>> c = cellstr(S)
??? Index exceeds matrix dimensions.

RE: index exceeds matrix dimesion error

I copy and pasted your code into my version of matlab and it worked fine (no index exceeds matrix error).  I am using version 7.0.  

however... instead of using the cellstr function you could just write:

D={'abc ';'defg';'hi  '}

note the different brackets... that will give you the same exact result as the code you typed
